4-Star Review of "Raging Storm"

Review of Raging Storm

The Remant series book #2

by Vannetta  Chapman

Raging Storm

In the Darkness,
Anarchy Awakens

When a massive solar flare wiped out all modern technology across the globe, the small town of Abney, Texas, was thrown into chaos. Shelby Sparks and her teenage son, Carter, have found refuge, but Shelby knows she can't simply remain hidden forever. Carter is a type 1 diabetic in need of insulin—and Shelby will risk her life traveling to Austin to make sure he gets it.

Shelby's best friend and high school sweetheart, Max Berkman, won't even consider letting her make the perilous journey alone. Together, they manage to get to the capital—only to discover that while things are desperate in Abney, Austin has turned into an urban nightmare on the brink of anarchy.

Shelby and Max's search for medical supplies will lead them into terrifying territory, where the only thing more uncertain than finding what they need is the hope of making it out of the city alive.

In this second book in an eerily plausible, action-packed dystopian series, survival will be threatened and faith will be put to the ultimate test as a raging storm engulfs America.

MY REVIEW:  First, let me state that I am a huge fan of Vannetta Chapman's writing.   I feel that she spends a great deal of time in research and stretches the imagination.  I have always enjoyed dystopian novels, but this one fell short for me.  It pains me to say this because I don't like to be critical. I think that, for this particular series, it is extremely important to read the first book in the series.  I did not read that first book and I was confused and found it very difficult to get interested in the book until the very last quarter of the book.  
       The writing was impeccable as always with Vannetta's books.  I think that many readers, especially those who have read the first book in series, will find this book very enjoyable.   
      I am giving this book a rating of 4 stars and I do recommend it to those who have already read the first book in the series.   Of course, I always feel that no matter what others have rated a book, everyone makes their own choice.  In fact, for me, when a great number of readers are negative about a book, I like to read it to see if I agree!  
     I was given a copy of this book by netgalley and I was not required to write a review and I was not required for any review written be positive.
